I think it is generally accepted that svn 1.5 will contain low-level
depth features which will enable people to experiment (with 3rd-party
scripts, etc) with good UIs for higher-level features such as the one
you mention here; once we've had some time to design a solid
higher-level UI for this sorts of thing, we'll put it in 1.6 (or
later). You can be part of this design process!
